In My May Mailbox

 In My Mailbox is a meme started by The Story Siren. I really like the graphic and since I received several books this month in both the mailbox at the end of my driveway and the one that resides in cyberspace I thought I would participate. I will probably only do this meme once a month. Click on the graphic above to learn more about In My Mailbox.

I love getting books in the mail. I get a lot of requests for reviews, so sometimes I forget what is coming. It's a wonderful surprise and so much better than the bills! These are the books that showed up in my mailbox this month:
Plain Jane by Schledia Benefield
Tribulation Point by Ricci Lane
Dance Lessons by Aine Greaney (if you didn't read her guest post on Wednesday, you should go read it now).

See that white box poking out the back of the picture? That's my newest toy and I love it! I still really like reading traditional print books, but the convenience of the Nook can't be beat. I had it with me on Saturday while shopping. I was standing in a long line for the dressing room, so I pulled out my Nook and read several pages of my book.

I've always accepted ebooks, but now with my Nook, I'm accepting more. I signed up on, too. I received my first two requests from Netgalley this month. Here is a look at what I have received in my email box this month:

Lethal Remedy (Prescription for Trouble)Lethal Remedy by Richard L. Mabry

From  Dr. Sara Miles’s teenage patient is on the brink of death from an overwhelming, highly resistant infection  with Staph luciferus, known to doctors as “the killer.” Only an experimental antibiotic, developed and administered by Sara’s ex-husband, Dr. Jack Ingersoll, can save the girl's life.

Seeking to put his life back together after the death of his wife, Dr. John Ramsey joins the medical center faculty staff. But his decision to do so could prove to be costly and even fatal.

Potentially lethal late effects from the experimental drug send Sara and her colleague, Dr. Rip Pearson, on a hunt for hidden critical data that will let them reverse the changes before it’s too late. What is the missing puzzle piece? And who is hiding it? 

The First Victim by J. B. Lynn
Steven George & the Dragon by Nathan Everett

I've also visited my digital library for audio books, purchased a book at the bookstore, and downloaded Nook freebies this month:

The Priest's Graveyard by Ted Dekker
Twenties Girl  by Sophie Kinsella

It Had To Be YouIt had to be you by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

From  The Windy City isn't quite ready for Phoebe Somerville -- the outrageous, curvaceous New York knockout who has just inherited the Chicago Stars football team. And Phoebe is definitely not prepared for the Stars' head coach Dan Celebow, a sexist jock taskmaster with a one-track mind. Celebow is everything Phoebe abhors. And the sexy new boss is everything Dan despises -- a meddling bimbo who doesn't know a pigskin from a pitcher's mound.

So why is he drawn to the shameless sexpot like a heat-seeking missile? And why does the coach's good ol' boy charm leave cosmopolitan Phoebe feeling awkward, tongue-tied....and ready to fight?

The sexy, heartwarming, and hilarious "prequel" to Susan Elizabeth Phillip's This Heart of Mine -- her sensational bestsellng blockbuster -- It Had To Be You is an enchanting story of two stubborn people who believe in playing for keeps.
Coffee Shop Conversations by dale Fincher and Jonalyn Fincher (I think this is an audio book)
Throwaway by Heather Huffman
Song of Renewal by Emily Sue Harvey

Well, there you have it. That is what's in my mailbox for the month of May. Did you pick up a good read this month?


  1. Oh I like your blog very much. You made it look like a book. Neat idea. Interesting choices. New follower.

  2. I thought Twenties Girl was a really cute book! It wasn't necessarily my favorite of Sophia Kinsella's books, but it seemed to have a different feel from much of the others she's written.
